Stampin' for Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome particularly if you haven't visited my blog before and you are here as part of the Stampin' for Christmas Blog Hop. It's my first time joining the hop where we are sharing Christmas projects every month.  I hope you'll visit all the team and enjoy the inspiration on offer.  

I've created a card using a very simple, but elegant stamp set called Joyful Holly from the Stampin' Up! winter mini catalogue.  I love this set as although on the surface it looks simple you can create so many different techniques with it. I've done a watercolour wash using Coastal Cabana ink on shimmery white card using ink from inside the ink pad and a water brush.  I let the panels dry and then silver heat embossed one of the holly sprigs.  I've added some splatter stamping and also then water coloured the holly leaves with Misty Moonlight ink.  Two matt layers of Misty Moonlight and Magenta madness card and a finishing sentiment make a bright and cheery card.  I've also added some epoxy dots for a little more texture.  

I love this technique of highlighting spots or rectangles using water colour either with masks or free hand. You can see a circular version  if you click on Forever Fern set. 

I'll be back with more Christmas cards with the Christmas Card Club soon too so do pop back. 

Thanks for visiting and enjoy the hop! 

Hugs and keep safe
